Raven Cafe

Reviewed By ChrisToplack - London, Ontario, Canada

Raven Cafe is a trendy spot that offers a wide variety of items on their menu. While I regret not stopping by for food, I was thoroughly impressed with their coffee, espresso and speciality drinks.

Based on the atmosphere and customer service alone, Raven Cafe is easily one of the best establishments in Port Huron.

We ate there, had a nice vegetarian croissant sandwich, not many vegan choices but I am sure they could accommodate most people. The atmosphere was fun and colorful! Good information about the history of Port Huron and cool photos. Will go there again, when I am in town.

I visited The Exquisite Corpse Coffeehouse while on a visit with a friend who lives in Port Huron. Firstly, I was obviously completely smitten with the name alone. But upon entering I was overwhelmed with the wonderfulness of the decor and the overall atmosphere. It was not too busy and there was a calm and welcoming air throughout. The place was outfitted for Halloween which will always get extra points in my book!

The barista was Sandra and she was lovely and friendly and perky. I'm not usually a fan of perky but it worked on her,

Anyway, I had my first ever cup of Matcha tea and while I probably won't be hooked on it anytime soon, I enjoyed it simply because it was sipped in a calm and relaxed atmosphere.

Do yourself a favour and pop in for a cuppa if you ever find yourself in Port Huron.

Palms Krystal Bar & Grill

In 1936 Beverly and Rubye Osborne were driving west from Oklahoma to California. They had no reason to be joyful. They were middle aged and the Depression had wiped out their savings. On this particular afternoon it seemed that everyone in the state was attempting to escape the famine of the Oklahoma dust bowl. With not much more than their meager belongings and a basket of fried chicken, Beverly Osborne coaxed his Ford pickup across the barren prairie. Suddenly, a bump in the rutted road scattered the chicken and basket. Picking it up, Rubye complained "this is really Chicken in the Rough®." With that chance remark, a fortune was born. Beverly turned his truck around and headed back home. A man who, on instinct, had made a modest fortune and lost it - Beverly reasoned that "fingers were made before forks" and that chicken could be a cheap source of food at a time when incomes were sparse. Beverly learned from his previous business experience and failures that every business must provide customer satisfaction by identifying customers' needs and how to satisfy those needs better than anyone else. Soon, with the money he had received from the sale of his wife's wedding ring, he had an operation serving fried chicken with shoestring potatoes, hot biscuits and honey. That was the delectable meal that started "Fast Food - Fried Chicken Franchising" - long before McDonald's or Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Went to this restaurant with co-workers. Had a great time. Really restaurant. Good service. The food was good... I ordered the salmon blackened. It wasn't spicey at all, but good.

The only downside was the calamari, don't order it. It wasn't that good. But the other apps we had we good and i was told that the flatbread(s) were GREAT!!! Three people in my party ordered them and loved it.

Tim Hortons

Reviewed By Rose H - El Paso, Texas

Stopped in this TH location this morning. I was a bit disappointed by the lack of cleanliness in this particular location. Had to clean our table off before sitting down. the drinks were made to order and the donuts were tasty. I used the restroom before I left ~ one stall was completely out of toilet tissue, the other stall had water all over the floor, surprised by the lack of maintenance! Only 3 stars because of the need for a clean up.

The Vintage Tavern

Upscale yet casual. Turn of the century building restored to original elegance. Wine bar with regional breweries featured. Full bar on two levels with a great view of downtown Port Huron and Canada from our roof top level. Three private dining areas for private events. Sample menu items include Filet Mignon, fresh Baked Halibut and Cajun Chicken Tortellini.

Reviewed By nettiesun - Davison, Michigan

The pictures looked like a great place and our hotel said we should try it.
It was more expensive, but we were ok with that as we planned ahead and had reviewed the menu online.
But the food was not worth the price, and the serving sizes were very small. Good but we could have eaten more.
We did share a dessert; something I could have made at home (and probably better).
Great views; indoor/outdoor seating upstairs. Very nice, but overpriced for what you get.

We were in Port Huron to attend the McMoran Jay and the American concert. Casey's was our go to restaurant for dinner.
My favorite is their chicken cherry wrap and I enjoyed every bite this time too! On a hot September day, the raspberry iced tea was so good.

Great independent option if you are looking for something other than Olive Garden. Pompeii also offers endless salad and HOMEMADE bread! I love the various ravioli choices (meat, cheese, mushroom, and squash (seasonal). My son loves the calzones and husband likes the lasagna. The place is a little on the loud side but I like being able to see the cooks in the kitchen and the pizzas coming out of the oven.

Fuel Woodfire Grill

Just opened about a month ago. It is right downtown in Port Huron.

Reviewed By JohnD99123 - Calgary, Alberta, Canada

The last Saturday before Christmas and headed to Fuel to give it a try. We settled in to the bar area which had a cozier feel than the dining room; one TV with an NFL game going and the sound off. Service was efficient and I selected a Ninja Chicken beer at $7 or 20 oz, and the wife sampled 2 cab sauvs before making her selection at $8.50 for a glass. The bbq was excellent; brisket, back ribs with cole slaw, corn muffins and great mac and cheese; the meals were good value.

Restaurant staff was amazing! They were friendly, helpful and quick. This was especially important when you need to serve a hockey team of 12-13 year olds who want to eat and play. Food was great at a very reasonable price. There was something for everyone. We most of our meals here. The view of the water and Bridge is unbeatable. Lobster Mac and cheese was so creamy! It’s a must have! And I have to say the staff was amazing again!!
